If You Want Your Teeth to Gleam, Brush with Neem!
Submitted by Organix South Inc.

The modern diet (and the over-emphasis of refined sugars and processed, synthetic foods) has wreaked havoc, not only on our overall health, but also on the health of our teeth and gums. Recent studies have shown that 3 out of 4 adults over the age of 30 have gum disease. Findings are showing that synthetically-manufactured toothpastes and mouthwashes with ingredients like fluoride and sodium lauryl sulfate are actually exacerbating the situation. Given the substantial amount of research that is linking our oral health to many other health issues, perhaps it can be hypothesized that our modern neglect of beneficial herbs is one of the contributing factors to greater gum and health issues.

For thousands of years, the mighty Neem tree (Azadirachta indica), a plant native to India and Southeast Asia, has been known as "The Village Pharmacy." One of the most enduring uses of this plant has been for oral care support and dental hygiene. Throughout India and Southeast Asia, humans have plucked the twigs of the Neem tree, chewed and used them to clean their teeth. Even today, in remote areas where people have little access to modern dental care, this practice continues. It is no wonder that Indians are known for their brilliant smiles and gleaming white teeth. Neem leaf and bark contain valuable constituents that make this plant an ideal choice for people who care about the health of their teeth and gums.

Ayurveda, one of the oldest systems of traditional medicine, uses Neem for its cooling, soothing and astringent properties. From an oral care perspective this means that Neem is:

Cooling - for minor irritations.

Soothing - for occasional inflammation.

Astringent - for tightening gum tissues.

Overall, Neem is ideal for protection and prevention of oral health and general well being.

In addition, Neem is also rich in antioxidants, supports immune system function, and promotes a healthy response to occasional inflammation. These multifaceted benefits contribute to Neem leaf and Neem bark as ideal choices for daily oral care wellness.

Neem has also been recognized for its anti-bacterial properties. Why is this important for oral care? Dental plaque is a sticky residue of bacteria, acid, and food particles that can irritate your gums and eat away at tooth enamel. Neem leaf and bark can assist in reducing the bacteria that causes plaque. Supporting healthy teeth and gums can be a front line of preventative care. Modern practitioners are recognizing the benefits of Neem and recommend chewing Neem leaves. For a better tasting solution, use Neem toothpaste and mouthwash!

Step away from the synthetic toothpaste, put down the alcohol mouthwash and go au natural, using the herbs that Mother Nature provided us. Most natural toothpastes contain ingredients that have been used for thousands of years and continue to be used around the world. How can you go wrong with that kind of data? If you want your teeth to gleam, brush with Neem!
